How Dinosaurs Really Died Off

The latest concept..An astroid didn't kill off the Dinosaurs. They were already extinct. The astroid came second...sorta like the chicken or the egg mystery...  Hope it gets sorted out someday.

Thanks made that interesting.Good comment. I'd love to go on a dig in Black hills So. Dakota. Suppose to be a great place to find all kinds of goodies.Facinating

That's my belief too.One hit and all gone? No, I have a problem with that. I'm sure a direct hit was devastating but not the END.Still, interesting to me.

It seems impractical to assume an astroid would have killed off enough of the dinosaurs all around the globe to stop them from breeding.<br />

I've seen mention somewhere that the natural cycle of the earth caused their demise - water shortage if I recall correctly - much like many assume was the demise of groups like the Incas, Mayans, etc.
